Government & Millenials

Why do millennials expect the government to do all the heavy-lifting in their lives? I am a bit worried about my generation. How can we possibly achieve anything compared to our forefathers with that attitude? We seem to ask for a lot but do nothing in return.

Millennials haven't faced failure- or even know how to think- critical thinking is beyond them; much less problem solving skills.

They are children in adult bodies- with the awarneess and skills of a 1970's- 12 year old.

I am a millennial too

I completely agree. There are few of us who work hard.

Zero hour contracts - Fifty years of stagnant wages - Foreign money inflating the housing market - Sick of being stereotyped and blamed for the ills of the world

All the heavy lifting like what? Providing health care? Providing education?

Late 40s

True words were never spoken. Comment from a male in his late 40s. Millennials are entitled, lazy, whiners. Sadly it's a product of poor parenting. They were spoiled and coddled and told they could be anything and could have anything they wanted. Now that they are out in the real world, they are faced with reality for the first time.

There are no trophies for participation or coming in last...

Put down your cell phone, and get to work. That's the first step to moving out of your parents home before you're Thirty, and making something of yourself

if you're so self righteous and self reliant why don't you stop using the public roads that our government paid for? stop drinking our water? stop using our public schools?

I'm sorry

Postmodernist- Marxist ignorance

...because they have not been taught properly.
They have no understanding of history, biology, economics and human nature....no understanding of the success that Capitalism has been to raise the world from poverty.....( flaws and all. Whereas Marxism has killed and oppressed more people).
Couple that with being raised by overprotective helicopter parents, the instant gratification from the Internet and the fake ego boosting from social media......they can not think nor care for themselves.
And they don't care to do so. They want the government to be their new protective surrogate parents.
